I managed to pick up BG1 and Throne of Bhaal (or whatever the expansion pack was called) for 1 last year. Still not played it yet

BG1's expansion was Tales of the Sword Coast.

Throne of Baal was for BG2.

BG2 is definitely worth playing.

never quite finished BG1, spent a few hours trying to win the same fight over, and over, and over, and never could seem to work it out

I'd be guessing the last fight against Sarevok. From what I vaguelly remember, it was a case of loading up on wands of Monster Summoning and keeping him away form your party until you could wear him down with missiles.

Cheesy, yeah, but otherwise he'd slaughter your party in pretty quick time.

K_G: You kite the wolf while shooting it with your bow.

Greg: You kite sarevok while shooting him with your bow after flash nuking everyone else there with fire bomb potions/arrows/trinket necklace.

I seem to forget to use potions (except healing) and item abilities in these games. Nevertheless, I did finish each game twice. Playing evil was a disappointment, though.

I may have given that the first game up before I learned how to cheese tough fights with monster summoning.

Yeah, some of those fights were too tough for a low level party unless you were willing to swallow a lot of deaths and many restarts until you fluked a win.

Or discovered a cheesy monster summoning like tactic of course.

it was one of the few things I disliked - a lot of big fights were near-impossible without that one spell

I'm getting bad urges to reinstall, but fortunately the WoW beta has eaten up all about about 2 gigabytes of my hard drive. I'm afraid to dig any deeper into that tiny bit of free space. I get enough hiccups as it is.

If I hurry up and finish ordering my new parts though...

I have been sorely tempted to install either BG or possibly finally get around to playing Planescape: Torment. Bad urges, as you say.
